DIY Portable Emergency Toilets That Are Easy To Make

Today it’s all about emergency toilets. I may have mentioned this before, but every family needs their own emergency toilets. I will not share mine. Nope, nada. So, there you have it. When I teach classes I always mention to those attending that emergency toilets are cheap to make and they better make one because I doubt anyone will share a used toilet with them. Yes, it’s gross to talk about, but we all have to go pee and poo, it’s a fact of life. I love hearing from readers because someone always comes up with a new idea for me. You will see that several of those making comments use kitty litter with theirs, but I also suggest this product: Reliance Bio-Blue

Gardens For Two People-Yes You Can Do It

Do you love seeing gardens full of vegetables? There is something so rewarding when we plant a garden and we slice that first tomato that was just picked.

Some people lost their family members, homes, their food storage, emergency preps and many personal things they can never replace.

Freeze-Dried Food Pantry Size For Emergencies

Today it’s about freeze-dried food in pantry size cans. When I teach classes or I’m asked to speak to large groups, I always bring some #10 cans (7-inches tall and 6-1/4 inches in diameter), but I also bring some smaller pantry size cans. The pantry size cans I have are a bit more expensive per ounce, but in reality, Mark and I don’t need to open a large #10 can for just the two of us. I’m so glad a few readers reminded me to mention the smaller cans. I thought to myself, oh my gosh, I have got to write a post about the smaller pantry size cans. Now, I did write a post a few years ago with pictures of them in my bag of food if we had to leave our home with our 72-hour kits.
